Just weeks after Lyft announced their new and improved shared rides, Uber released a statement detailing their newest service, UberX Share. Similar to Uber’s old pool option, UberX share allows passengers who are going in the same direction to share an Uber ride and save on cost.
However, there are a few improvements to their service! In a blog post Uber stated, “Since pausing shared rides in 2020, our teams have been working tirelessly to revamp the experience.” Some of the new features you can expect to see with UberX Share are:
Not only can you expect to save money with UberX Share but you will also be making a sustainable choice. With both Uber and Lyft’s shared programs, riders help to cut gas use and reduce their carbon footprint.
UberX Share is available in various cities across the U.S., including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Phoenix, San Diego, Portland, Indianapolis and Pittsburgh. Uber is planning to expand UberX Share to even more cities this summer.
Uber is excited about their newest service, posting “Our pooling product has long been a rider favorite, from the spontaneous singalongs to meeting new friends and other fun chance encounters. We believe UberX Share, and the improvements we’ve made for drivers and riders, will make it better than ever.” Do you plan to try UberX Share?
